Tried to get ex band members but couldn’t: Zayn Malik



Zayn Malik, the former rock band One Direction, has admitted that he made efforts to approach his ex-band but couldn’t achieve because of their pride issues.

The 22-year-old rock star quit 1D eight months ago, exposed in an interview that he tried to contact his ex-band members after the separation.

He shared that “The truth of it is,” “you can think one thing about a situation and the total opposite can happen. I had every intention of remaining friends with everybody, but I guess certain phone numbers have changed and I haven’t received calls from a lot of people.”

He further elaborated that “I’ve reached out to a few of them but haven’t gotten a reply. Certain people have pride issues, but its stuff you overcome with time,”

Zany confessed that “genuinely enjoyed [1D] and did whatever I could to be myself within that”.

The singer was off the point that “It’s just not where I sit as a musician,” the continued by saying “The other boys’ taste was generally indie rock. its good music, but it was never cool where I was from.”

It was inquired from the rocker that had he heard the album Made in the A.M. but he said “Nah,” “I’ll be honest. I thought the first single was quite cool. I heard the second single and… yeah, I didn’t buy the album.”

Zany not just separated from his ex-band but also split over her ex -fiance Perrie Edwards and made a duo with American supermodel Gigi Hadid.

He cited as, “I like girls that are a bit chunky in certain areas – the nice areas. I like a fuller woman,” and continued by saying, “I enjoy an intellectual conversation as well, where someone can construct a sentence beyond what hair and makeup they’re wearing, and talk about something political or about the world. I like an opinion.”

Zayn is expected to release his first solo album by early this spring.
